This is a look at multiple UK cases which, reading in Australia, are reflected in case within our justice system.

The victim takes the stand and gives evidence; a grueling ordeal which makes the victim feel as if they’re the one on trial. I'm fascinated by true crime and legal matters and jumped at the change to request Fake Law through the publisher, who provided me with a free copy to read and review. Their first book, The Secret Barrister: Stories of the Law and How It’s Broken, was a Sunday Times number-one bestseller and has been in the top-ten bestseller list for more than a year. The Secret Barrister is also a blogger who in 2016 and 2017 was named Independent Blogger of the Year at the Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards. Fans of the Secret Barrister will be pleased with the latest instalment, which offers well-written insight, making difficult-to-understand laws clearer with interesting and current case studies.

If you enjoy those daily moments of cutting through the crap while also entertaining delightfully, then ‘Fake Law’ is absolutely a book for you. I study and work in the legal field and this book does not fail to bring to light all the important issues that our legal system faces. His third book is ‘Try not to Laugh’ and is a guide to memorising, revising and passing exams for students.

It protects all those who act within it, even deeply-unpleasant toerags, but our freedom hinges on its consistent application to angels and devils alike. In 2016 and 2017, the Secret Barrister was named Independent Blogger of the Year at the Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards. The cases are specific to the UK and its legal system (which is similar enough to the Australia’s that I understand the generalities) but ‘fake law’ is not a phenomenon unique to the UK. The title of this book leads one to consider what is the relationship between Fake News and Fake Law and in some ways the comparisons can be canny.And now you see worthy political movements taken over by very knowing and cynical Marxist-inspired anarchists who seek to destroy rather than improve, reshape or even replace. Yes, the enemy might be winning, the chips are down, the walls breached and all other metaphors and analogies you might come up with; but the rebels are still fighting in, still scoring victories, still causing the bad guys to clench their black-gloved fists and growl about crushing ‘lefty human rights lawyers’ with not a little hint (if you forgive the switch of analogy) of complaining about how they would have got away with it ‘if it wasn’t for those meddling kids’. Householder rights are perceived to be absolute, the right to protect life can quickly tip into a right to take life. It's particularly concerning to read about how fake law facts have ended up quietly restricting people's access to justice. Crime does get a look in, quite late in the book, and surprisingly (given that TSB is a criminal practitioner) I found that the most pedestrian and weakly argued chapter.
